On 4 July 1938 No 4468 Mallard charged down Stoke Bank at 126 mph, attaining a world speed record for steam traction that still stands today. Mallard, a London & North Eastern Railway A4 Pacific was officially carrying out 'brake testing' when it made this record run. Unofficially, the LNER was determined to take the world record from Germany. Within the year Britain was at war with Germany and such frivolities were forgotten.
